Is Yoga Right For Your Child?

by SKHC Editor on June 30, 2010

Yoga exercises may seem to be more of an adult thing but have you thought about getting your child involved in yoga?  Obviously yoga is great for the body but it’s great for more reasons than what probably meets the eye. 

The article 25 Reasons Your Kids Should Do Yoga has some really wonderful supporting material to (at the least) consider getting your kids into yoga.  Think about building your child’s self-awareness, self-esteem and ability to handle stress with one form of exercise.  Think about building not only physical but creative strength as well with this one form of exercise. 

There are many different types of yoga (Ashtanga, Bikram, Hatha, Iyengar, just to name a few).  Yoga is also more than just a stretching session.  Yoga not only challenges the body but the brain as well.  Yoga is one’s own individual journey yet can easily be done as part of a group.

We did yoga in one of my classes in school (I think it was either 6th or 7th grade, possibly 8th) and I really enjoyed it. When you are young, you are able to do a lot more flexible and physically demanding exercises like yoga with ease, and as long as the child enjoys doing it, it is a great form of exercise for them!
